The Sennelier Extra Fine Artist's Watercolours are a honey-based watercolour paint offering luminous, brilliant and intense colour.

Honey is used in L’Aquarelle Sennelier not only as a preservative but as an additive giving incomparable brilliance and smoothness to the paint. Always striving for excellence, Sennelier has reworked its watercolour formula by increasing the amount of Honey in the paint to reinforce the longevity of the colours, their radiance and luminosity.

L’Aquarelle Sennelier has been produced in the same way for more than a century using the best pigments and top quality Kordofan Gum Arabic as a bonding agent.
This mix of natural ingredients produces colours which have a smooth, bright texture and offer lively, colourful shades. The Gum Arabic and honey combination offers incomparable quality of application, producing superb washes. Then, this base is mixed with pigments and carefully ground. Sennelier makes sure to wet the pigments in purified water (with no mineral salts) for 24 hours before mixing them in with the bonding agent. This improves the way in which the colours and bonding merge together, in turn bringing out the full beauty of the colours.

Sennelier watercolours are ground in the traditional way using grindstones rotating slowly so as not to heat up the paste. This operation is carried out in several stages until the paste are as fine as possible thus getting rid of any particles which might impair the perfection of the wash.

Produced in the same way for more than a century, the Sennelier Watercolour range uses the highest quality pigments, Sennelier honey and the finest gum arabic as a bonding agent. This mix of natural ingredients produces colours which have a smooth, bright texture and offer lively, colourful shades. The gum arabic and honey combination offers incomparable quality of application, producing superb washes and vibrant line work.

Presently a collection of 110 colours, we are thrilled to add these vibrant 12 new iridescent colours to the range.

With 12 individual iridescent hues available in 10ml tubes, there are also three available sets to choose from. Two sets are introductory selections of 6 colours, with one focusing on the Metallics & Pastels and one Introductory palette. The large set, with all colours, comes in a classic black metal watercolour box.
